My husband and I love wood -fired pizza so decided to try Pick Axe Pizza for dinner. We loved the inexpensive garden side salad, and the pizzas were some of the best I've ever tasted: fresh ingredients, crispy, hand -tossed crust, piping hot. The service...More

We ordered a medium pizza and a salad. The salad was delivered promptly, but the medium pizza we ordered took about 40 minutes to be delivered to our table. We discovered that it wasn't actually a medium, but was a small. We didn't bother returning...More

Very rustic premises--like just about all of Idaho Springs--but superb pizza! Thin crust, which I prefer. Was thinking of Beaujo's but came upon Pick Axe. Glad I did!

The pizza was fantastic. Service was great and very Family friendly. We enjoyed watching the pizza being prepared and cooked in a brick oven. The chicken wings are excellent. If you order 6 wings you may need some help they are seriously huge.
